Exceeded expectations, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Clean modern and beautifully presented spacious accommodation with lovely comfortable beds. Loved having a separate fully equipped kitchen, Sky TV and free wifi was a bonus.Really felt like a luxury home.The large veranda had comfortable furniture and sea views which truly are breathtaking. We contacted owners when we were there to book for summer again! Olhos d'agua is a lovely town, very safe, plenty of lovely restaurants and little bars and not overly pricey.3 gorgeous beaches to chose from. Friendly helpful people, including owners who helped with a private transfer (30 mins from Faro airport) and left very comprehensive instructions to ensure a perfect stay.Special thanks to Patricia, our taxi driver, who retrieved something my son had left on our flight, which we thought we'd never see again!.Zoomarine is worth a visit especially with the kids. Albufera and Villamoura both very short taxi or bus

ride away if a change of scenery needed, although we found Olhos d'agua had everything we needed including a spotless pool almost to ourselves. Really didn't want to come home.☹️Can't wait to go back😀 K&T, Scotland

This was the 3rd year we stayed, and can't recommend the place highly enough. The apartment has everything from sky TV to air con, dishwasher and washing machine and an absolutely outstanding view from the balcony. The pool area has a decent size pool, plenty of beds and plenty of space for children to play out of the pool. Olhos has everything we need, plenty of traditional Portuguese restaurants and a good mixture of other cuisines. Manzo's is our favourite. The beach is lovely too. We will definitely be back.

Ohlos DAgua

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great and had everything we needed, the location was brilliant,5 minute walk down to the beach with plenty of places for food and a drink. Ohlos is a perfect base if you want to explore other more lively areas of the Algarve. We shall be returning.

This apartment is an absolute gem. We have stayed in a number of apartments over the years and this is up there with the best. The view from the terrace over the village and down to the beach is amazing. As for the apartment there is all the mod cons you could want and the king sized bed is a joy to sleep on. From the outset the dealings and communication with Lorraine and Gordon was outstanding. It was a pleasure to stay in this apartment.

Thank you from Brian and Pat Stevens

Honeymoon Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband went for our honeymoon as Olhos D'Agua is one of our favourite places and where we got engaged and I have to say this is one of the nicest apartments we have stayed in. The location is perfect and the view from the balcony you can't beat. The apartment was fully equipped with all you need and more than any we have been to before. It is decorated perfectly and so comfortable. I would definitely recommend to anyone going to Olhos for holiday and I would definitely stay here myself again!

Thanks Gordon and Lorraine for letting us stay, it really was an amazing honeymoon!
